Midwest Gal




Dress (Chill/NY); Sweater (Limited); Boots (Nine West); Tights (Kohls)
Necklace (H&M)

I'm from Wisconsin and have been living in Minnesota for the past 8 years. Only in these states will you find a random display on the highway that includes a tractor and fake pigs and cows.  While there are many reasons that places like New York, Colorado, California, or Texas are more appealing - I can't imagine ever leaving the Midwest. What's a wedding without the hokey pokey or chicken dance... a Sunday without wearing green and gold... and beer without brats.  The Midwest is the best - don't cha know :)

PS. Breaking Dawn Part 2 was awesome!!!  Especially the shirtless Jacob part ;)

Haha I just did a double take to see if the cows were fake. Definitely not something you see in Jersey! I love your high heeled boots.
